  • By now, anyone who is interested in the Winter Olympics is likely aware of Kate Hanson and her pre-race dance routine - and that now includes American pop artist Beyoncé Knowles. As Hanson waited to compete in the luge event Monday for the United States, many were caught off-guard by her unconventional approach to preparing. Hanson was spotted on camera several times with headphones on, busting a move. And although she did not medal in the women's luge event, coming in at 10th place, Hanson has continued to make headlines. In a post-race interview with NBC, Hanson explained the kind of music she listens to before competing. "Strictly Beyoncé," Hanson said. "My girl, B! She just gets me fierce and I get stoked. I've got good mojo on, so it's how I roll." Shortly after Hanson announced Beyoncé as her motivation, the pop artist responded by posting a story about Hanson on her Facebook page. Hundreds responded to the post. The USA Luge Facebook page also commented: "Wow! Thank you Beyoncé! I'm sure Kate would love to show you her moves in person."%3Cimg%20src%3D%22http%3A//beacon.deseretconnect.com/beacon.gif%3Fcid%3D145200%26pid%3D46%22%20/%3E
